This is the brainchild of a friend of mine, Katy H, in Kerrville, TX. It's great!
I believe that the majority of Americans are good, hard-working people. For too long we've been silent because we were going about our business raising our families and making the country work. Now everything that we've worked for all our lives as well as our inalienable rights guaranteed by the Constitution are being stolen from us by the current Administration and Congress. It's time to DO something!
Do you remember the movie, "Miracle on 34th Street?" Do you remember the scene where a man is on trial for claiming to be Santa Claus and as evidence his attorney has sacks and sacks of mail brought in, all address to Santa?
Keep that image in your mind.
Most people have heard about the Alamo, but just in case you don't know the "real" story, Texas was part of Mexico in 1836 and a tyrant named Santa Anna was taking away people's rights by trampling on the Mexican Constitution of 1824. That's what the men in the Alamo were fighting for; they flew a flag with the Mexican colors that said "1824."
We are NOT an angry mob! We are NOT un-American! We just want the government to follow the U.S. Constitution. In that way we are doing just what the men at the Alamo were doing.
I do NOT want anyone to be violent or ugly or disrespectful. What I AM asking is that you do a very simple, easy thing that will make a far greater impact than signing a petition. (Remember the image of the thousands of letters, mountains of letters.) Each of you buy six postcards and six postcard stamps (which are 28 cents). Send one to your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators. If you don't know their addresses (ours are printed in the daily paper) you can find them at:
http://www.house.gov/ for your Representative and http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm for Senators
Even if your Representative and Senators do not support what's going on (ours don't, thankfully) they need to know that we are behind them to give them courage to stand up to the loud hateful voices of opposition. Also write the President, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. Their addresses are below:
President Barack Obama 1600 Pennsylvania Ave Washington DC 20500
Speaker Nancy Pelosi 235 Cannon House Office Building Washington DC 20515
Senator Harry Reid 522 Hart Senate Office Building Washington DC 20510
Keep it short and simple (a requirement on a post card) but don't delay! They will be back in session after Labor Day, so mail it between August 31 and September 4 so you can FLOOD THEIR OFFICES with mail!
Snail mail makes a huge impact on elected officials, but letters take too long since the anthrax scare in 2001. Postcards are cheaper to mail, too!
Please send this to anyone else you know who is frustrated, scared, and angry at what the current government is doing to our freedoms before it is too late.
Remember the Alamo!
What’s a post card?
Funny you should post this. I’m watching “13 Days Of Glory” right now on the tube.
“Whats a post card?”
Perhaps you would like to send a PINK SLIP to certain legislators!
GREAT SITE AND INFORMATION! THANKS
Well, this is one proud Texan that will do it tomorrow......thanks Texas Gypsy!:)
